With all the terror threats and kidnappings and violence, should I give it a miss and head over to HK for a short trip instead?  :-[

Krungthep is fine just avoid farang areas like kao san road and stick with places where locals go.

You're more likely to die from dengue than an act of terrorism so plaster on the mosquito repellants and avoid dawn/dusk.

recommendation for Bali is the same - avoid the Kota Beach stretch especially the pubs/clubs/bars.

so far situation in krungthep is good - reporting live ......

Malaysia is boring but exchange rate is very yummy

LOL .....  :P :-X

back to topic:-  it is really safe to travel alone in Bangkok but i'd watch my back in Malaysia and Indonesia.

take sensible precautions like leaving your contacts with the embassy and hotels/B&B .... no one knows better than locals if you let them know your itinery and they can advise you on the places that you are visiting. 

sometimes they can tell you where there are protests or demonstrations going on which you can't find in a travel blog or news.
